Christmas 2020 -- Silent Night -- Pentatonix

This is Paula's favorite Christmas song. She loved the simplicity of the song, and wanted a simple version of the song. She loved the story that a church lost its organ, and needed a Christmas song that could be played on a single guitar.

I've looked for songs that matched that simplicity. I like Enya's version, but Enya can't do simple; her songs get big without her even trying. Kelly Clarkson has a decent version, but Paula would never forgive me for picking a version with Reba on it.

Back we go to this year's shortstop of Christmas songs: Pentatonix. The five don't over-produce this song. It's clear that they don't do multiple tracks for anyone, and they give a very basic performance that I love.
